Locust master pretty much ready

As you all know the results of the vote were mostly in favour of the Locust for the next kit I run.
So I wanted to make sure I had it all ready the way I wanted it. I ended up beefing it up slightly.
My original was basically built pretty much the same way Marc Yungblut built his over a decade ago, And this stood only about 4.5 inches tall. In my mind thats too small for a 1/60 kit. As a 20 ton mech I think it should stand about waist high to the Atlas. Not its groin.
So Ive thickened it, lengthened  the legs, enlarged the feet and made the srm pods bigger.
As you can see from the pics its now about 6.5 inches tall and a little easier to cast and assemble.
If you'd like one please email me at
Im trying to get an idea of how large a run i need to do.

And I dont have a final price yet but Im hoping the $50 buck range will be do-able.
